When I was at the World Tea Expo, I ran into Libre – makers are attractive Loose Leaf tea travel tea tumblers. They were super sweet to give me one to review here on Oolong Owl. Admittedly, I have a Libre already which I bought in 2010. I used it at everyday at work for over a year. Back then, it was the only good looking tea tumbler I could find in Canada. This glass has taken a beating and it shows. Back when I purchased this Libre, all they had was the metal lids and a few different sizes. Now … Continue reading, hoot!
I spotted The Tea Spot‘s Urban Tea Tumbler at the last World Tea Expo and was impressed with the design. To my delight, The Tea Spot sent me an Urban Tea Tumbler to play with! It was great timing too as the tumbler arrived when I was on crutches with a sprained ankle, unable to carry things as I walked, but I could carry this tumbler as it has a strap! I gotta say, the Urban Tea Tumbler is a very nice tea tumbler. I’ve been using this tea tumbler almost every day even when I don’t need to as it’s a … Continue reading, hoot!
Here I go again – me and my obsession with tea tumblers. I’m starting to buy these things as if they are accessories that go with my purse. Today’s travel tea tumbler is special though, the DAVIDsTea’s Matcha Maker, which is a unique design and the first time I seen a tea tumbler that focuses on matcha. First off, I need to address a question that is probably is on some of your minds. “Why is this a thing – can’t I just use a mason jar/any other tea tumbler to shake up hot matcha?” You can, go ahead and try it shaking hot … Continue reading, hoot!

I’ve had a couple blog posts now showing off my Mandala Tea’s Glass Tea Thermos in action, so I think it is time to review how nice of a tea thermos it is! I am a big Mandala Tea fan. Great teas and customer service! I found their Glass Tea Thermos and purchased it for my first cruise so I can have a pretty tea thermos. I have quite a few travelling tea steeping items, but I wanted something attractive and stylish that could also double as a tea pot in a pinch. Mandala Tea’s Garret has a pretty handy video on using … Continue reading, hoot!
I purchased this really cool looking travel tea tumbler, T Free Hourglass from ZenTeaLife.com. Zen Teas is an online tea seller based in the Vancouver, BC Canada area! (I’m a sucker for Vancouver tea sellers – since it’s my home town!). When I saw this tea tumbler on Zen Tea’s website I was IN LOVE! It’s slim, sexy, unique, and functional. Anyways, Zen Tea had a sale, and I jumped on it ordering the tumbler. I had a hard time deciding which colour to get – I loved all three and thought they all looked good, but I went with … Continue reading, hoot!
